Americanah - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Three continents, one decade, many lives, and nearly every attitude about race you can imagine are contained and explored in Americanah (Knopf, $26.95). With a rare mastery of literary craft, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie deftly explores the lives of Ifemelu, a writer/scholar living in America who is surprised by her homesickness for Nigeria, and of her ex, Obinze, a success in democratic Nigeria, but still haunted by his years of having lived as an undocumented alien in London after being shut out of post-9/11 America. As these two grow up, come together, and fall apart, the novel meditates on what it means to have a homeland and a race. This is an utterly compelling story about identity that will have you laughing and marveling, brokenhearted but also triumphant.
